Today is a wonderful day! 1) My husband finally made it home from his lengthy business travels. I’ve really missed him. 2) It’s my birthday. 3) I’m excited because tomorrow I leave for the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Thailand! I’ve never been to Thailand before. Actually I’ve never been to Asia at all, so this trip is especially exciting.

I want to thank each and every one of you who has purchased from me or taken one of my classes. You helped me to earn this trip last year, and I am so very appreciative of your business, your support, and your friendship. So today I’m posting a thank you card, from me to you!

I’m not sure what my internet situation will be while I’m gone, but I’ll try to post some photos of the trip if I can. If I can’t post them here on the blog, I may try to post them on Facebook or Instagram (@stampincandy.) But I plan to have blog posts scheduled for every day I’m gone, so be sure to check back here every day.

By the way, I haven’t yet earned next year’s trip, an Alaskan Cruise, so please keep those orders coming!

Here’s what I made:
